TTT = IL + fom 1 + landscape.

TTT = 3 distinct works brought together in one installation, which will vary depending on the presentation space.

TTT = Tourcoing -Taipei -Tokyo.

Tourcoing: Invited on two occasions as artist-professor at the Fresnoy-Studio national des arts contemporains, Christian Rizzo was given the opportunity to create artworks using new media. In 2009, he presented IL120609, an installation bringing together three videos, including IL, and then, in 2011, a first version of fom1.

Taipei: During his first residency at Taipei Artist Village in 2006, Christian Rizzo met Iuan-hau Chiang, a Taiwanese artist working with computer-generated images. They collaborated together on the performance, comment dire « ici » ?, then on the virtual exhibition here we are now, and finally for the three TTT films. The sequences using motion-capture for fom1 and paysage were made in Taipei.

Tokyo: Throughout the summer of 2011, Christian Rizzo was invited by the Institut français de Tokyo to present a new work in the Institute’s garden, and came up with the idea of projecting a virtual landscape over top of the natural landscape already present. And, thus paysage was born, strongly influenced by Japanese engravings. IL and fom1 were also projected in the garden that same evening. This was the first projection of TTT. paysage would later be presented at the Fresnoy as part of the exhibition Visions fugitives, which is devoted to animated films.
